Living Well: A programme for adults with long-term health conditions


A Sláintecare supported project – right care, right place, right time

How can the “Living Well” Programme help?

“Living Well” is evidenced based to improve participant’s self-efficacy, health behaviours, and social engagement while reducing feelings of depression and anxiety

What is the “Living Well” programme?

Free Group Programme

Two and a half hour workshops, once a week, for six weeks

Delivered by people living with long term health conditions and health professionals

A  ‘Chronic Disease Self-Management Programme’ (CDSMP), designed in Stanford University California

Who will benefit?

People living with one or more long term health condition or their carers

Evidence shows that those coping poorly with their condition and those lacking confidence benefit most

What past participants say:

“Going into  “Living Well”….I  hadn’t had one positive thought for three years. The course changed all that”

“My confidence has increased”

“It has provided me with the interest to acknowledge health issues before they become uncontrollable.”
